Goody Goody Burgers: A Casual, Old-School Diner in Tampa
The Tampa Bay area is full of great restaurants, but not all of them are known for delicious Tampa-centric food. This Hyde Park diner originally opened in Tampa in 1925, serving up burgers like the Original Goody Goody Burger “POX,” with a side of hand-cut onion rings or fries. Its casual atmosphere and old-school style will take you back to a time when classic diners were the place to go before movies after church on Sunday morning. Richard Gonzmart, 4th-generation caretaker of the Columbia Restaurant Group and Goody Goody’s owner, fondly recalls picking up a sack of burgers “POX” (pickles, onions, secret sauce) for his family. Those world-famous burgers, with fresh-ground Angus beef and no filler, are back for you to share with your family today.

Seems like a new chicken sandwich hits the market every week. Our Fried Chicken Sandwich, served since we opened in 2016, features a chicken breast that is battered, seasoned and fried and served on a bed of lettuce, spicy-sweet pickles and buttermilk ranch sauce between a toasted bun.
Fried chicken sandwich and bubbly? We’re fancy like that. We’re Goody Goody.
Who loves a crispy, steaming hot batch of onion rings?
Our hand-cut, hand-breaded, made to order, never-frozen Goody Goody onion rings are as fresh as they come! Served with a spicy buttermilk ranch dipping sauce, these crispy gems are great on their own or as a side with one of our burgers or other sandwiches.
About our hot dog, The Rusty, Tampa Bay Times food writer Helen Freund said, “This thing was a monster, but legit.” The hot dog features Goody Goody™ chili, shredded cheese, onions and blistered jalapeños. The 1/4-pound Florida all-beef frankfurter on a house-baked bun was named for owner Richard Gonzmart’s beloved German Shepherd, Rusty. “Yes, I’m drinking sparkling rosé with this massive chili dog,” Freund said. Well-played, Helen. Cheers!
Fish on Friday? We have you covered with multiple menu items, including our Goody Goody™ Grouper Plate. Fun Goody Goody fact: The grouper on our Grouper Sandwich and Grouper Plate is fresh-caught from the Gulf of Mexico. It makes those dishes tastier than frozen grouper that swam in waters halfway around the world weeks before it got to your plate!
Delicious grilled or fried Gulf of Mexico grouper, served with french fries or Goody Goody™ slaw, tartar sauce. Order a side of Goody Goody coleslaw for extra flavor.
